Here is mine: 2011 27" iMac and 2x Dell U2410
Nice, i see you removed the stand. And putting the display vertically looks cool
What is it like to use monitors in such an orientation? Does the difference in height not bother you?
Not intended to troll, genuinely curious.
Can I ask how you get the screens to work like that, is there a setting in OS X to re-orientate them?
Can I ask how you're interfacing the Dells to the tbolt/MDP ports on the iMac?
i.e. MiniDP-to-DP cables, basic MiniDP-to-DVI, or Mini-DP-to-Dual Link DVI?
I've been tempted by the U2410 for my tbolt MacBook Pro, but I've been burnt by a MiniDP-to-DP cable that doesn't work properly on my HP 24" and am unclear whether the regular single-link DVI adapter will drive a display at 2560x1440...
Yes, in display settings.
iMac 27" with 24"ACD attached on e right side;
an 24" EIZO also in portrait mode on the left; sometime connected via USB graphic converter (quite slow); nowadays its mainly the monitor for the MacMini
right now no picture; too messy
it wont, you need to get the dual-link dvi cable
but the u2410 doesnt go to 2560x1440 it goes to 1920x1200 which a single link dvi does work
first few hours i was link dam WTF, then i got used to it and i love it...
I code alot.. and i like see 149 lines instead of 8x
Ah when I get a 27inch Mac I will be keeping one of my current monitors which is in portrait. I find having a monitor in portrait is so much easier to work on, than 2 landscape one's.
Ah, sorry I thought you were using the 27" Dell (D'oh! the '24' in the model number should have tipped me off. New brain please )
27" iMac and Dell 2001FP monitor (20", 1600x1200, 8 years old). Keyboard is ~23 year old Northgate OmniKey/102.
Nice keyboard =)
Thanks, now I have a use for my 21.5 full HD LG when I eventually get rid of my G5. I'd just need a new stand is I use it in portrait mode.
Does anyone else get the thing where if you have a monitor in portrait mode then videos played on it go strangely choppy? When you drag them back to the main screen, or have it in landscape it doesn't happen. I've had the same thing on both a 2008 8800GS iMac and the 2011 6770M one. Very annoying.
I'm trying my Samsung monitor above my 24" iMac atm, as all the confusion over which screen to do what on and moving my head back and forth, as well as posture issues, i'm looking for alternatives to side by side. If this doesn't work out I'll try just the iMac display.. I haven't done that in years though. I need to tidy up before photos!
I just rotated my 20" Dell (1600x1200) to 90deg, and video seems fine playing on it, both when I have the 27" set to primary or the 20". In contrast to your setup I have the 6970M card on my iMac, but I can't imagine the 6770 is any worse. My setup is using 10.7.4 - you running 10.6...?
Thanks for that, glad to hear it's not normal. I'm running 10.8, but the same happened for me in 10.7.x. I wonder if it's something to do with the display itself then. Or maybe some software I'm always running. Curious! I'll troubleshoot a bit more.
Actually I do this at work, the vertical monitor is awesome for reading webpages.
My 27 inch iMac (mid 2010) at work. flanked by 2 x 24 inch Samsung's. One's connecte via usa adapter. Almost 8 mio pixel =)
How long does it take you to walk from the first to the third display?
sorry if reviving old threads is a nono. Just got my new desk set-up and wanted to show it off. Nothing major. 21.5" 2011 iMac to a 22" viewsonic external with iPad1 as side pallet monitor and then my old blackbook cause it fills the desk. I am still working on getting all the external HDD set-up and deciding if I need the USB HUB and what not.
The ipad is actually connected to your Mac??
If so, what do you use it for??
Here is my late 2011 21.5" i7 iMac with HP 22" monitor...
I keep the HP monitor mainly for running Windoze 7 via Parallels....
iPad is connected using air display. I use it for pallets in photoshop as well as status screens, etc. Sometimes its just to look cool. lol
Which USB device are you using, does it still work with Mountain Lion. I am looking to add a 3rd monitor to my 2010 iMac.
